I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Simply love it. Was just expecting to see a bit of Blender in the making off. Didn't think it was all made with Blender. Thanks for the links. Next step, I think, tutorials would be great ;)


  2. I'd love to see it now but apparently vimeo has cut off access to their videos for mobile users. I am using a Nexus. One that has flash player built in and still I'm cut off.

  4. It's really good! And I'm seriously not just saying that because it uses Blender. It was very fun and creative. Congratulations for all the team involved o/

  5. This is what I think the next Blender Open Movie should be . . . a live action short with all visual effects created in Blender.

    There is NO excuse anymore! It used to be that shooting in 35 mm film was too expensive, but now with the Canon HD cameras there is no excuse!

  6. Amazing end result and a very well made making of to boot! These are the kinds of projects that gets Blender taken more seriously by the industry.

    I would love to know how much was composited in Blender, as there is just the one quick shot of the compositing tree in the making of clip. Does anyone know?

  7. Finally, i was waiting for such a professional use of blender. I always believed that blender its capable of advanced compositing and animation use in motion graphic. I have used blender before for small animation but never like this :). Great work guys, u have proved that u not need to spend 1000$ + for a good 3d animation package. For newbies out there: start using blender professionally, like this guys, leave the monkey alone :). Such work will make a huge impact on blender development. Movies are ok, but 3d software are generally used in motion graphics for vfx.

  8. Soooo Good, (can y speak french?) :-D.

    wooa c'est vrament un travail de qualité, le makinf off est très explicite . je remercie toute l'équipe de réalisation pour ce magnifique montage :-).

    thank's for the wonderfull making off :-).


  9. Hi, everybody!

    Thank you very much for your comments! We even couldn't imagine that you'll like it so! Thank you!

    We will keep using Blender in such way, 'cause it is really great and flexible tool and the only real difference between it and commercial software for us is compatibility, integration with other software (with Vue, for example). We very hope this project will live and grow the way it goes for last four years (really big changes and growing).

    From us I can say that we are just started working on a couple of projects with a lot of CG in live action (yes, 5D Mark II :)) and the main 3D tool will be… Blender. So if this can be interesting for you, keep following the news. :)

    From all of ARt DDs

  10. Now that's a fine stylized tai chi work of art! The patience and going with the flow with a firm assurance that all is good seem to be the strong theme here in the film and not only that, but behind the creating and composition stage, there too, the virtue of patience screams through!

    Every frame is worth the hard work for this wonderful, freshly clean masterpiece! Quite an effective commercial too. Not too strong or forced at all! Excellent!

  11. It is pleasant to look at profissionalnuyu, well-coordinated work. Well done guys!
    I wanted to write in Russian, but your browser does not understand =)

  12. I'm compelled to comment, even though I have nothing to say... I guess I'm speechless. That was sick. Keep up the good work.

  13. so many "can't believe it was made in Blender. Very professional"...

    guess that can't be helped, since professional use of Blender is very rare among its myriads of hobbist use. Of course, not a limitation of Blender, just a consequence of putting a powerful tool available to anyone. Not everyone will buy Maya just to doodle around...

  14. Great execution! Thank you for the behind the screen and breakdown of the shots and storyboard.

    @All I wish to see more companies that are using Blender 3d in their workflow or pipeline. Of course, professional production quality assured.
